April Showers Bring May Flowers

Okay, so last year California was praying for rain, this year not so much, as we've now surpassed the wettest year since 1922.  We should be able to have lots of flowers now that the drought is over though, but my hope is that we won't be splashing in puddles again anytime soon.  I've made a card to commemorate this record wet year using the adorable #1450 Rainy Day Gal by Sandra Caldwell (and to add to the Outlawz Festive Fridays splashing in puddles and umbrella challenge).  I've used the sketch from the current (yea, me!) Outlawz Wednesday Sketch challenge with digital paper from AMBillustrations, and scraps on my desk from DCWV and Debbie Mumm for JoAnn Fabrics.

Here's a closeup of #1450 Rainy Day Gal where you can hopefully see the Diamond Glaze I applied to her slicker and boots after coloring with my Copics. I've used translucent blue Nuvo Drops for the puddle and raindrops too.  It's also entered in the Outlawz Name that Letter challenge where you use as many things you can think of with the first letter of your name.  Can you count the "D"'s?  (There are 8)

I'm adding this to the DL.Art May Linky challenge, Jo's Scrap Shack #187 AG, Crafting-With-Friends #42 AG, Creative Ladybirds May AG and Crafty Hazelnuts May Patterned Paper Challenge .
